comment Automatically answer 'Yes' when using apt-get install
Please don't ever use --force-yes: as this reply to a related thread on debian-devel suggests, --force-yes might render the system unusable. (I'm not downvoting because the answer actually addresses the problem as stated by the OP, but I'd add a BIG RED WARNING to the answer anyway.)

comment Debian and Win 8.1 Dual Boot (Separate HDD)
Did installation mention "UEFI"? With recent BIOSes the boot phase became much more complicated thanks to UEFI. All in all, I'd try the just issued first release candidate of the upcoming "Jessie" (the next Debian release): debian.org/devel/debian-installer -- it should have many improvements in the UEFI field.

comment Iptables rules suddenly not working
...and what happens if you do find /lib/modules/ -type f -name '*recent*' -print ? Does it find a module named xt_recent.ko? I'd say the stock Jessie kernel for armhf does have this module.

comment Network card names (eth0, eth1) missing after replacing the motherboard
@donquixote, do dmesg | grep -i eth to see anything the kernel printed about ethernet devices it had been able to activate. It might turn out the built-in network card is not supported by available drivers (unlikely but still a possibility).
